Flahault named Abassador of the Year
Pegi Flahault, owner, Mobile Office Management, LLC (M.O.M.), was named Ambassador of the Year at the Chamber’s First Friday Means Business breakfast in January.
Flahault is in her third year with the Aiken Chamber’s ambassador program and finds the experience to be very rewarding. “The ambassador program has provided me an opportunity to get to know nearly 60 other people over the past year as we worked on various Chamber events. I enjoy meeting other Chamber members, to learn about their businesses, and to share ideas on how we can help each other grow,” Flahault said.
Flahault chaired the support team for the Chamber’s Membership Event last year where she coordinated the efforts of “runners” who picked up member applications and delivered information packets to new members throughout the region.
She moved to Aiken in late 2010, re-started her business in early 2011, and began volunteering as a Chamber ambassador and a local SCORE counselor.
“My business is far ahead of where I expected it to be when I moved here. I've been involved with a number of chambers of varying sizes in different states, and I feel that the Aiken Chamber is absolutely the best. By volunteering with the Chamber, I’ve met some dynamic business owners who have become friends, and that is an added plus,” Flahault said.
“Being an ambassador has given me visibility and credibility in a short period of time. We really have an outstanding Chamber in the greater Aiken area, and I appreciate the opportunity to be a part of it. The ambassadors and the members that I've met prove that I am lucky enough to live in Aiken - and I am lucky enough!” Flahault said.
